Breathe in focus, Hold, Think. Breathe out. Smile and say “Ahhhhh” or thank you.
ABOUT THE PICTURE The storm of 2012 as viewed from my little patio. Fuzzy because it was too cold to stand and focus. We did not get to Shul today, but last night Denver son was able to take a break from plowing and supervising plowing to eat Shabbat dinner with us and then catch some sleep before heading out for a long night. He is middle management for a landscaping company and that means when the snow comes he works until all is cleared. He worked most of Friday, all of last night and most of today. Means he has made his February numbers and all in the first week. So that gives some satisfaction. Those who rely on the plowing business for a living, loved snow storms. On to the topic.
The Weekly Photo Challenge Theme supposedly changes each Friday, but unless I missed something and yes that is very possible, there is not new challenge yet. So thought I would continue on the topic of Hope.
TOPIC 35 HOPE AND THINKING ABOUT WHAT MATTERS Taking the easy way out. I earned the right, remember, I am soon to be 75. The easy way? Quote hunting. So here some that gave me pause.
STAYING STRONG TIP: The lastreminded me of the importance of listening, of just being there, and hearing. Most of those I know who are of little faith and hope, still ask why and wait for an answer. Even when we cannot give certainty, we can always give affirmation and hope. “I don’t know, but I have hopes.” has seemed to work well for many.
